The International Women's Air & Space Museum is located in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, only seconds from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, the Great Lakes Science Center, and the USS Cod Submarine. We welcome you to visit us and discover how women's air and space history is more than Amelia Earhart and Sally Ride.

Our Mission
The mission of the International Women's Air & Space Museum is to collect, preserve, and showcase the history and culture of women in all areas of aviation & aerospace; educate people of the world about their contributions; and inspire future generations by bringing the history to life.

Our History
More than 40 years ago the idea of preserving the history of women in aviation was just a dream. Since then, memorabilia and historical artifacts have been collected, preserved, and stored. Today this dream is a reality. The International Women’s Air & Space Museum, Inc. (IWASM) began as a committee of Ninety-Nines who started saving memorabilia and history of female pilots. The Ninety-Nines is an international organization of female pilots formed in 1929. There were 99 charter members and Amelia Earhart was the first elected president. In 1986, the museum opened in Centerville, Ohio. IWASM was welcomed by the City of Cleveland, Ohio in 1998, where you will find our home at Burke Lakefront Airport. Our exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week.

Since we are located in a public building, museum admission is free!
